Cluj-Napoca Clinical Recovery Hospital uses a videoconferencing solution to protect medical personnel from SARS-Cov-2 virus

“We thank our friends at BRINEL for their support and promptness in helping the Cluj Clinical Recovery Hospital team in the professional management of this medical emergency! The used platform, Cisco Webex, ensures effective communication and the foundation of the decision-making process, while limiting staff exposure to the risk of contamination”. 

Dr. Sanda Patrichi, Manager of Cluj-Napoca Clinical Recovery Hospital

Over 700 doctors and nurses from the Cluj Clinical Recovery Hospital now gather virtually for meetings, using Cisco WebEx, to avoid the spread of the novel coronavirus.

One of the challenges the health care system has to face nowadays is protecting uninfected patients from those infected and protecting healthcare professionals.

The complex, multidisciplinary activity, carried out in the Cluj Clinical Recovery Hospital, includes daily meetings and reports between medical professionals. These physical encounters with the entire staff could favor the spread of the SARS-Cov-2 virus, including from staff to hundreds of patients and vice versa, therefore rapid action was needed.

Hospital management has proposed the implementation of an IT solution that allows the gatherings of medical professionals to take place without physically meeting in the same amphitheatre. In addition, the Recovery Hospital is preparing to enter the 3rd line in Cluj for treating patients with COVID-19, if the situation requires it.

Thanks to the videoconferencing solution implemented by BRINEL, the institution can now organize online meetings, minimizing these risks. The Cisco WebEx platform is used for both meetings and daily medical reports. At the same time, Hospital staff may also interact with other medical professionals or collaborators outside the institution without the need to move.

Team members participate in videoconferencing either directly from their department or from home, on any device, including their personal phone, by accessing WebEx Meetings from the application, or from a web browser. This narrows the number of contacts. 

There was no need to modify the hospital's IT infrastructure, and deployment was carried out with minimal investment and rapid mobilization of the BRINEL team. At the same time, the implementation was carried out 100% remotely, completely safe. 

“We have penned in the Cisco WebEx application an easy-to-use way of working for the hospital management team to organize video sessions. A series of tests have been carried out to ensure the optimal functioning of the videoconferencing solution and we will remain close for providing support to users. It is important to mention that the solution ensures an increased level of security, because it is controlled and managed centrally by the IT department of the Hospital, which can impose restrictions or privileges for users. In addition, communications and shared documents are encrypted”.

Specific medical documents can be viewed, downloaded and modified by users, and with the "Whiteboarding" function they can make annotations in real time.

Digital transformation in the healthcare field is not a new initiative, but we still have a long way to go and a lot to learn along the way. But now we have the opportunity to see how important it is to digitalize not only businesses, but also healthcare or education systems. Cisco WebEx is a step in digital transformation, facilitating the interconnection between doctors and researchers from anywhere.

Access to healthcare technologies and services is vital and will become increasingly critical as healthcare organizations are transforming.
